Here are a few pointers on what you need to avoid on a speed date.

What Not To Discuss On A Speed Date

Avoid controversial topics like women’s rights, racism, abortion, vaccine/medical/alternative medications, drug legalization, death, money, politics, weight and cosmetic flaws, health problems, and sex initially. You can discuss them if the speed date progresses to a real candles- and-flowers date. It is best to keep it simple and fun so that you don’t have any conflicts the first time you set your eyes on each other.

While attending a speed dating event, remain calm and relaxed. Don’t take it too seriously. Don’t memorize these questions – it will make it all seem scripted. The other person may think you are interviewing or interrogating them. So, get an idea from these questions and let the conversation flow from their responses. You will know when you meet ‘the one’! All the best!
